U.S. Kids Golf Foundation '21 Annual Impact Report | Page 2

A message from our founder

Dear Friends , ​
2021 was a remarkable year . In the throes of a pandemic , golf was a refuge for many families like yours . ​As golf enjoyed a boom , new challenges arose . As demand for playing spots in our tournaments increased , tee times and course availability became extremely scarce . Travel restrictions affected many of our tournaments , particularly international events , and , sadly , kept some very deserving players from being able to compete in our World Championships . Our staff and volunteers persevered , and we executed through all the challenges . ​
This 2021 Impact Report will show you the numbers , the new events added , and some important new relationships we ’ ve made . No report , however , can accurately convey the spirit and resolve that I saw in our volunteers , coaches , and tournament parents and families . Our work is reaching people worldwide , but the focus is always on one family at a time . This is our mission and purpose , and we had a tremendous year of growth in 2021 . ​
​ My best , ​
Dan Van Horn President & Founder U . S . Kids Golf
